After the founder and leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA endorsed Joe Biden for President, the Trump campaign responded by warning that Biden is “an empty vessel for the radical left”.
“Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield just this morning made clear that ‘everybody who believes that Joe Biden should be president’ is ‘welcome into this campaign.’ That now includes Bob Avakian, the radical founder and leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party who just endorsed Joe Biden and instructed fellow communists to support Biden in the election.” reads the Trump campaign’s statement.
Avakian told his supporters Saturday that “At this critical hour, every appropriate means of non-violent action must be utilized to remove [Trump’s] regime from power,” adding that “using all appropriate means to work for the removal of this regime must include voting against Trump.”
Avakian also demanded that his followers not vote for any third party candidate.
“To be clear, this means not a ‘protest vote’ for some candidate who has no chance of winning, but actually voting for the Democratic Party candidate, Biden, in order to effectively vote against Trump,” the communist proclaimed.
